Event information

The Choir of Royal Holloway will be releasing a series of videos across Festival, Interrupted as part of their #singlesat6 programme.

This means that unseen footage of concerts will be released every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at 6pm. These can be found by subscribing to the choir’s YouTube and Facebook channels (ChoirofRoyalHolloway).

We’ve picked our best bits from the past five years, and want to make sure that nobody goes without great choral music during this time.

There is a great selection of music, from the earliest polyphony from the 13th century to Russian treasures by Rachmaninov, through to arrangements of spirituals and folksongs.
